Union Square block

Fat Quarter Shop is revisiting Classic and Vintage blocks and trying to look at them in all new ways.  Today, several bloggers are sharing their interpretation of the Union Square block.

Before piecing my block, I wanted to play around with fabric placement.  There are likely endless possibilities but these are my three favorites.  (EQ8 quilt design program makes playing with different color combinations on a block so fun and easy!)

I chose my favorite look from these and made a block.   I intend to make the block into a mini quilt.  It was fun to play with fabric placement before sewing up the block.   (Fabrics pictured are Painter's Palette solids.)

See more versions of this block on the Jolly Jaber.  You can download the pdf pattern here and there is a youtube video tutorial as well!  Make sure you check out the Union Square quilt kit too!
